The thing with writing about David Conrad for almost six years (woah) is that you get a reputation.
“That pigeon-kicker who loves David Conrad.”
There are worse reputations to be had. “That Steely McBeam” comes to mind.
I’ve been picking on Steely McBeam a lot lately, haven’t I? Let’s check in with Steely to see how he feels about that.
Or is that his angry face?
Anyway, because I worship the steel bridge David Conrad walks on, I have been provided by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra with two tickets to give away to my readers to attend his upcoming show!
As his self-united wife, I respectfully request that you do not bring extra panties or bras to throw at him. IT’S THE SYMPHONY, PEOPLE. Have some class, n’at.
What: “Twisted Storybook Favorites” featuring Alice in Wonderland-themed Final Alice, and Peter and the Wolf. Final Alice focuses on the end of the story, and Peter and the Wolf is rewritten to have a Pittsburgh spin and will be narrated by David Conrad. The Alice portion of the show is for mature audiences, so don’t bring your kid as your date unless your kid is thirty. There’s lots of other stuff happening including a concert prelude, a pre-concert artist chat, Final Alice artwork display and silent auction, and more!
When: These tickets are for the Friday, May 6 showing at 8:00 p.m.
Where: Heinz Hall in downtown Pittsburgh.
Value: The current price for two best available seats for this showing is $143. So let’s go with that. $143.

How to enter: Leave a comment and tell me about how awesome David Conrad is. I KID!
Seriously though, when I was younger Alice in Wonderland scared me. I don’t know what it was but something about the cats and the hole and the queen and before you know it, I’ve got the bogglejiggities. As you can see, I still haven’t nailed down a definition for my new word. So tell me in the comments what was the show or movie that irrationally scared you when you were little. Was it Alice in Wonderland? Was it Flash Gordon? MacGyver? Barney?
If I’m being honest, the one that MOST scared me when I was little was … ready? The Ten Commandments.
I never admitted this to my father or sisters, but that movie would mess me up for weeks. Frogs and locusts and giant beards and snakes and THE ANGEL OF DEATH KILLING ALL THE FIRSTBORN? That’s some PG-13 rated stuff and I remember being little and going to bed all, “Thank God I’m not the firstborn. Sucks to be Ta-Ta.”
Tell me yours. One comment per valid email address. You have until Friday at 5:00 p.m. to comment at which time Random.org will select the winning comment number. If your comment goes to spam, freak out. No. Don’t freak out. Just sit tight because I’ll occasionally go in and pull them out.
Fine print that’s the same size as all the other print: I have not been provided with anything in exchange for this post other than the two tickets that are being given away.
